DaBaby released a new track recently, and one line drew a lot of backlash from fans. In the freestyle "Beatbox" remix, which he dropped on Friday, it seems that he takes a strong swing at 17-year-old YouTube star JoJo Siwa.
The line in question comes when DaBaby raps, "You a b**ch, JoJo Siwa, b**ch," while he holds up a photo of Siwa on his phone.
The diss left many fans legitimately confused over why he would swing at a teen internet star, and angry for doing so.
Despite the backlash, DaBaby seemed to find the outrage funny, and took to Twitter to explain that the line wasn't meant as a diss, but was simply a play on words. DaBaby's real name is Jonathan (hence "JoJo") and he used Siwa as a twist on "See why."
"😂😂😂😂 I love Twitter bruh," DaBaby tweeted as the uproar was in full swing. He later added, "I 'Siwa' I’m not like the rest of you n***as .😂😂😂"
He also tweeted directly at Siwa, and explained that he meant no disrespect and that his daughter is a huge fan.
"@itsjojosiwa my 3 year old princess is your number 1 fan. I bought her every product you have out. She think she you. 😂," he wrote. "Don’t let em trick you into thinking id ever have a problem with you. My word play just went over their heads. All love on my end shawty, Keep shinning!"
